Background and Identification ¶ 

The Canon PowerShot SD870 IS was released on August 29, 2007 and was only the second point-and-shoot wide-angle lens camera produced by Canon. The SD870 was seen as the replacement model for the older SD800 that was released in later 2006. The SD870 offers a larger LCD screen (3.0" vs. 2.5") and better resolution (8.0 vs. 7.4 Megapixels) compared to its previous model.

To identify the device and differentiate it from other Canon PowerShot models, simply look at the front of the camera. The front will read "Canon Digital IXUS 870 IS." Other PowerShot models will have a different product number on the front.
